If like me you need a little help when mixing cocktails and trying to remember the recipes you can make with the available spirits. A new Bluetooth smartphone connected cocktail mixing platform may be the perfect solution.
EBC Services have created Barman II that builds on the technology used in their original system and now provides Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity allowing it to use a smartphone companion application, as well as providing an open source system.
Watch the video below to learn more about this new smartphone cocktail mixing platform that is available on both iOS and Android devices. Its creators explain little more :
Just pick any drink you want to make,your drink size, and mix it! You can customize any drink just the way you like it. The Barman uses a proprietary drink scaling algorithm so that your cocktail will taste the same no matter what size you make.
The Barman’s glass-illumination CREE LED’s will illuminate your glass or shaker blue when the Barman is ready to mix. The display will tell you what to pour. As you pour, the progress indicator will move across the display letting you know how much you have left to pour. When the progress indicator has reached the end of the display, the Barman will illuminate the glass or shaker red, letting you know to stop pouring. It’s that simple!
The Barman II cocktail mixing platform has taken to Kickstarter to raise the $34,000 it requires to make the jump into production. So if you think it’s something your home bar could use jump over to Kickstarter to make a pledge from just $25.
